GRAPH OF THE WEEK
We've been working on the seasons in science so this is a great time to do this graph.
We are reviewing the l-blends this week and I needed a little paper and pencil activity to see how they are doing.MAKE THE CAKE
Here's a little partner game for practicing the -ake and -ail word families we'll be playing this week.
ROLL AND WIN
I have had a dice game forever called 'Phase 10'. I thought I could make into a math game and the idea finally hit me. There are 2 different dice. One has 1,2,3,4,W,W on it. The other one is 5-10. The kiddos roll both dice together and write a number sentence for the numbers they roll. If they happen to get a W, they make a tally mark in the box. When they get 5 tally marks the game is over. The two partners compare their number sentences and the one with the most wins. I put this in my math stations and the kids love it. You can buy the dice at Wal-Mart or Amazon.com.

It's time for a homework review with my Keeping Skills SHARP game. I had a student come up with a fun variation to the game. She likes to put a small treat like chocolate chips, M&M, cheerios, etc. on every square. Then when she gets the question right, she earns a treat. Her mom says she wants to play it over and over again. What ever works!
I hope you find something you can use in your classroom! Have a fun Halloween!
